Jake [ADOPTED MAY 23] is a 6-year-old male who came from a Southern Illinois shelter with a high kill rate. He is housetained and crate trained but we have never found the need to crate him. He does well with all other animals. Jake is a very loyal dog who bonds closely with " his human". For that reason, all members of his new family should be prepared to take an interest in his care so that Jake will share his affection.
